    Talking Star Wars Weekends 2010

    So I have my trip booked for Star Wars Weekend. I am so excited! We will be there opening weekend. Now I just keep on looking to see when they announce what celebrities will be there and when.

    We went once before, back in 2006 and had a great time. My nephew is such a huge Star Wars fan. It was great seeing all the characters. Last year we missed it by 1 week - we went the week before. A huge dissappointment missing it, but this year we made sure to check that we had the right week.

    This year will be the first time my 3 year old will be able to experience it, and I am sure he will have a blast. He is already into watching the Star Wars movies and the Clone Wars. It wil be my husband's first trip to DHS for Star Wars Weekend as well. I am so excited I am rambling!!! And I still have a little over 3 months to go!


    Anyone else going?

    With the Star Wars Celebration 5 being held in Orlando in August, I wonder if that will impact the attendance for Star Wars Weekends this year?

    I hope it does The less people there when I am there the better for me. Not so much for Disney.

    Re: Star Wars Weekend 2010

    During my trip last year we went to a Star Wars Weekend, and even though it was the hottest, most crowded, most line standing we did for our whole trip, we had a blast. The Hoopla is so much fun! This year we're going at Christmastime so we won't be able to make it, but probably in the future again.

    Question Re: Star Wars Weekend 2010

    We are going to be there by accident during the June dates. Anything we shouldn't miss about the Star Wars weekend?

    Re: Star Wars Weekend 2010

    For anyone who is a Star Wars fan, this is a lot of fun. There are celebrity guests available for photo ops/autographs (although those will be gone quite early- you have to get a fast pass for it) , characters available throughout the day to take pics - liek Darth Vader and Jedi Mickey. There are daily parades centered around Star Wars. There are also some special collectibles you can purchase. When you get to DHS, they usually have storm troopers around the entrance.

    Don't miss the Star Wars Hoopla, its HILARIOUS. As a person whose not a hardcore fan,e films, it was so funny watching Darth Vader sing and dance to the song "Can't Touch This".

    Don't forget Ewoks, Chewbacca, Stormtroopers, bounty hunters, the Emperor and his red guards... the year I went they had Mace Windu, Kit Fisto and a total DEAD RINGER for Anakin from Episode III. He looked, sounded and acted just like him total deadpan. The girls were going nuts over him because he looked so much like Hayden Christenson.

    And the best thing is the show changes every year. When I saw it, the band Mulch, Sweat & Shears had a "battle of the bands" with the Mos Eisley cantina band. It was a riot.

    About time they finally got someone from the original trilogy besides the usuals.

    Re: Star Wars Weekends 2010

    I will be there the 1st weekend so I will miss out on Billy Dee Williams, but my nephew is such a huge fans of the Fetts so that will be exciting for him.

    My son is a huge Chewbacca fan (or as he calls him, Chewby instead of Chewy), but he will be happy taking a picture with the costumed character. He is too young to care about talking or meeting the actors, but my nephew will like that.

    I can't wait to go!

    Re: Star Wars Weekends 2010

    I don't usually get too hyped about this event, but Billy Dee might just be worth going over to see. I might consider the first weekend also, but not because I care about who those guys played in Star Wars so much as to try and ask Morrison about his role in the upcoming Green Lantern movie.

    Re: Star Wars Weekends 2010

    I'm considering taking June 4th as a vacation day from work just to go to DHS to meet Billy Dee just for s**ts & giggles... and make a couple of my fellow Star Wars dorks friends in California jealous.
